It is clear that the owner takes great pride in creating a welcoming ambiance for guests as the house was cheerfully decorated with lights for the festive season.

We received a very warm welcome by Throey into a perfect holiday house. The kitchen was excellent and supplied with the basics that you needed (salt pepper tea and coffee). There was plenty to do in the nearby surroundings and it was very comfortable to stay at the farm too. We are hoping to return! more

Thank you Patricia and friends, I look forward to see you again :) more
